For Banco Itaú customers, phishing is not the only threat coming their way. There are also e-mail messages from bank officials themselves such as Oscar Caviglia, advising people to download a banker Trojan advertised as iToken. Once launched, this Trojan (identified by Bitdefender with the generic detection name Trojan.Banker.Delf) displays a fake utility window that asks the user to update certain Itau bank files. The Trojan then steals the authentication data and the one-time passwords generated by the iToken and sends the gathered information to the bank official.

The second ongoing fraud campaign started by Oscar Caviglia aims at Banco Itaú with e-mails to inform customers of an account update. It says the user needs to click a certain link and follow all the requirements listed there, including to log into the personal account and type in authentication data and account private data.

As a rule, always avoid giving out credit card information, especially when you need to disclose your PIN or CVV info. Banks and other institutions working with money never ask clients to change IDs or passwords via e-mail. When in doubt, pay them a visit to make sure. Also, install anti-virus software and keep it up to date.
